Bomber from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a yellowish orange with a spongey white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has caramel and pine. And caramel. And pine. And caramel. Very sweet smelling - to the point of feeling my teeth rot. Taste is of sweet caramel, spicy pine and bittersweet orange with a lot of resin. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes somewhat dry and to the sweet side of bittersweet. Some alcohol. A thick caramelly resinous brew. No clue on the bottle date.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Arrives from the tap with a pale tan colored head. The beer is a light amber hue that is jsut a touch darker than the Iron Horse (I think). The aroma has a solid citrus character, as well as a dank herbal character and pine notes as well. The beer has a peppery, almost woody character to it as it warms up.
Ample citrus hop flavors as well as a dirty, almost skunky hop note that adds some bite to the hop character. The beer is medium’ish bodied, though not overly heavy and it has a light enough carbonation that provides just enoug of a prickly texture. The finish lingers into a fair amoutn of bitterness as well as a peppery, herbal character that has a bit of rosemary and menthol character, definitely resinous.
A nice Double IPA, not quite as good as the Iron Horse, but once my palate adjusts back from that, this beer comes into its own with its juicy hop character. This is definitely a bit more resinous and dank, which is a nice enough contrast when you are looking for that sort of thing.
